What are the biggest global challenges that we have to address in our century? Providing free access to cheap, environmentally friendly and renewable energy is surely one of the most important. Many other issues can be solved, once the energy problem is settled. Since research in photovoltaic technologies has made sufficient progress in the last decades, the consequential aim is now to find a suitable way in storing the electric solar energy. This defines the mandate of my scientific mission today.
